How long after henna can I add in indigo?

Alright so I'm trying to do a jet black color. I've done henna/indigo 2 step process before and I would do the second step immediately after with perfect results. It's been years and grew that black back out. All my natural dirty blonde is back.

Needless to say I am having too much fun with this red, but I do want my black... eventually. Maybe a few days to a week.

My question is, how long after doing henna can I put in the indigo and still get black results? Or would I have to do the henna step again? It's already been half a day...

I've put it in my hair a couple of weeks after hennaing to tone down the orange and it worked fine.  I only left mine in minutes because I wasn't going for black just a bit of darkening.  Maybe someone else will chime in!
